Juliet Stevenson reading a good book before literally taking flight for an hour and a quarter in 'Wings' - very little fanfare for this show but it's VERY VERY good with a compelling subject matter #SEEITTOBELIEVEIT#ABSOFSTEEL
If you don't believe that God is real, if you don't believe that God can be an intimate part of your life, then you can't possibly see that He is. You take all of the signs and explain them in a myriad of ways. Or you don't. Because you can't.
Then, sometimes, something changes, and your eyes are opened, and you finally let go of the explanations you've been struggling to hold on to.
I love when people make this transformation. It's beautiful.
All of these moments have been there the whole time, but they have been obscured by a lack of faith.
It can be hard in this day and age to hold onto our faith, and even if we have been living in it for years, something can shake it to the core. It is then that we most need to remember what we saw when we had it. It's the thing that helps me the most when I'm not sure where God has gone in my life. I have to stop, and look back. When I can see where He has been in my life, it is easier to see where He is. What a beautiful gift it is.
When I first saw LipSense my jaw dropped as the distributor put an expensive Pavo babywearing wrap in her mouth with her bright red lips... this stuff has super powers because not a speck of colour was left behind. I had to try it!
Few films literally leave me speechless. To say mother! is a strange film is the understatement of the century.
This film has divided everyone. Audiences hate it. Critics don't really know what to think of it. I think mother! is beautiful. Aronofsky has put a nightmare on screen and I couldn't look away.
Lawerence and Braden are exceptional. This is without a doubt Jennifer Lawerence's best performance of her career and Javier Bardem is just haunting. Ed Harris is fantastic and Michelle Pfeiffer made me hate her with another incredible performance. I really can't put mother! into words.
Every performance is flawless, there were two actors I didn't know were in this so that was cool. It's shot so interestingly. The lighting felt so natural. Aronofsky barely lets you breath with close shots and it turns into the most uncomfortable movie experience I've ever had, and I loved it. The last 40 minutes of this film is insanity. The pure definition. I really can't put this into words. I think mother! is a masterpiece. I'm sorry I know many people will disagree but I love it. There's so many ideas, layers, it can be interpreted in endless ways. It demands to be studied. I've heard people say this was boring but I was so engaged. I just love mother! so much. But I don't recommend it. It's too much for people to handle. If you love movies that challenge, that maybe don't spell everything out for you, see it. Please. It's a one in a lifetime experience. I can't wait to see it again but I'm also scares me to watch it again. Not for the faint of heart, not for the common movie goer. If you know me personally please DO NOT go see this. You'll think I'm mentally unstable like my friend thought after he saw it with me and I expressed how much I loved it.
I don't want to jump the gun here but as of writing this, mother! is my only my favorite movie of the year but probably one of my favorite movie of all time.
A living nightmare.
A thing of beauty.
